Pinned Tabs take up way too much space in Firefox 57, why?

Posted

After updating to Firefox 57 my 10 pinned tabs take up a third of the tab bar. How do I make the space between the favicons smaller (like pre-57)?

Thanks, HP

P.s Another smaller thing is that I find the turquoise "activity"-dot is to big, bright and aggressive for my taste. (See it on the Gmail pinned tab.)

Hello, enter about:config in your URL bar, Ignore the 'This will void your Warranty' warning, there is no warranty. Then search for the pref browser.tabs.tabMinWidth and change the number to your desired width. If this solved your issue, mark as solution.

Thanks, for your fast response. :-)

Unfortunately the 'browser.tabs.tabMinWidth' only changes the size of the "normal" tabs, not the "Pinned Tabs".

I don't think there is a setting to change the size of Pinned Tabs currently.
